Lost Cause

Lost Cause (sometimes called Chicago's Lost Cause to differentiate from the California band of the same name) were a pretty well-known punk/hardcore band led by frontman Joe Kelly from about 1986 to 1989. They released a two records and their music evolved into more of a metal sound as the years went by. Lost Cause often opened up for some of the larger national punk acts (typically at The Metro) and as a result got quite a bit of exposure within Chicago. After the first Lost Cause record, all of the members outside Joe Kelly quit and formed MOSH. Joe returned with a new line up to record Chicks Go Wild, an amalgamation of punk, metal, and rap that, in retrospect, might have been a few years ahead of it's time. Upon it's release in 1989, however, the record appears to have ruined whatever reputation the band had and the group broke up the same year.

Angry Daisy

Angry Daisy was originally formed in 2004 by Carole Murray on guitar and vocals, Brad Morgan on guitar, Howard Metz on drums and Steve Flynn on bass. After several gigs and a few recordings, Steve moved away and took big part of the band's heart and soul with him. Eventually, the band broke up. Carole and Howie continued on with friend and bassist Joe Larsen. Fast forward to 2013 when Brad, badly missing his band mates, decided he could no longer tolerate being "bandless" so he reached out to Carole and eventually Angry Daisy reunited, and were reignited with Joe on bass. The band is currently writing new material and hopes to start gigging again in the summer of 2013.
